The oil mines are the only reason why the US is maintaining its military presence in Syria. This is what US President Donald Trump declared during a meeting with President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the White House, reports TASS.
“We have oil. Oil is secure. We have left our soldiers only for the oil,” Trump said, adding the following: “As you know, we recently took our soldiers back because, the way I see it, the time has come for us to be worried about our borders, not others’ borders,” the US President said.
“The ceasefire regime is being maintained very well. We have talked to the Kurds, and judging from everything, they are very content. I would like to thank President Erdogan for the work he has done,” Trump said.
